Caramel-coloured Daios Cove Mansion is a multi-level luxury villa on the edge of Daios Cove Resort in Crete. The sprawling, family friendly stay has sea-view living spaces and three bedrooms – each with a private terrace. On the lower level, there’s a private spa with an indoor heated pool, sauna, fitness room and treatment area – in-villa massages can be arranged on request (just ask your dedicated villa concierge). Outside, a large terrace frames the tiered infinity pool. In the evenings, enjoy leisurely alfresco meals from your private retreat, or take your pick of the resort’s restaurants, a short stroll away.
